Press Room

Recently the Hovione Cork site achieved certification of The Business Working Responsibly Mark for the second time, having first achieved the Mark in 2018. The Mark is the leading independently audited standard for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability certification in Ireland and is based on ISO26000. The Mark assessment process involved a root to branch review of Hovione's corporate social responsibility and sustainability management systems across five pillars - Governance, Workplace, Marketplace, Environment and Community.   “The awarding of the certification for another 3 years is great recognition of the work and dedication that the team in Cork have to continuously improving and developing the CSR standards and practices at the site and its positive impact on both the workplace and the wider community”, said Louise Dennehy.   The process for recertification began in April this year lead by Louise Dennehy, HR Business Partner, Marguerite Lynch, HSE Manager - Environment, Bruno Dias, OpEx Specialist and Maureen O'Leary, Procurement Manager with the audit taking place virtually at the end of October. Along with a full process and documentation review, 4 team members were interviewed by the assessor on their knowledge, awareness and understanding of the company’s CSR activities.   You might be also interested in: B Corp Certification Sustainability
